I want to play Warframe on my laptop which has a GT 740m and Warframe says that the GPU isn't supported. I have the lastest direct X updates and the lastest GPU drivers from Geforce experience

I live in Canada, so I can't use that link and the GT 740m is still ok for gaming. I do plan on building a second computer but I just want to know whats the problem why isn't it working. It works on my main rig btw(GTX 970 and i5 4690k)

but I cant play on the Intel HD 4600 graphics so no, the GT 740m is more then enough for the game

are you implying the GT 740m is a slower GPU than the Intel HD 4600 graphics??? the GT 740m is a much faster GPU than the HD 4600, the GT 740m even beats the best Iris pro graphics. and I got it to work anyway so its fine, I enabled both GPUs (HD 4600 and GT 740m) and the game worked but it was using the GT 740m, I could tell because I could see the usage of the GT 740m(framerates, temp increases, etc)

Explain what you are saying vs what he posted that the game is telling him. I am not the one saying it. The game said it. So no matter what WE say, the game is not going to change.

I'm going to suggest that you have a nice long chat with his game so that you can convince it that it is wrong, and will allow him to use it to play the game. Once you have completed that, I'll send the next guy that wants to use a GT 740M with that game to you too.

Provide your system specs please! Need to know CPU make/model, system memory amount/speed, GT740M make/model/amount of VRAM and operating system. Also, are you attempting to play Warframe through Steam or stand alone install? Thanks!

did you not read what I just said I got the game to work, and if you don't believe me when I say the GT 740m is faster(much faster) than the Intel HD 4600 graphics go look up benchmarks, Trust me, the 740m is MUCH faster

it doesn't matter if I play it through steam or not because it launches a launcher kind of like Minecraft and I have an i7-4700mq, 12GB of DDR3 @ 1600MHz. but it doesn't matter because I got the game to work with the GT 740m

My laptop has 12GB of ram, a removable i7 4700mq(4cores8threads) and like I mentioned before a GT 740m, if I want I can get the exact same motherboard for my laptop just with a GTX 850m or 860m instead of the 740m
